    Simple; confirmed that Roger Goodell himself visits the site, along with others in the NFL front offices.

    You know how when we have a lurker step forward and introduce themselves to the group, and they get a bunch of "Welcome to .NET" posts? I expect the same here.

    Other than that, no complaints.

    You know what would be the coolest? That would be if Mr Roger Goodell established an identity which was never explicity confirmed as him, but we all knew it. Then he could go mano-y-mano with us in the Smack Shack and tell us straight out what dumb-****s we are (and why) without being called out for it in the media. Just sayin'. I think it could lead to a far greater understanding of each other's points of view. You listenin', Rog?

    So what you're saying is no leading with a sharp tongue, or chastising of a defenseless poster? What is this, the No Fun League? :D

  • Welcome Mr. Goodell. Hope your ribs have healed from all those giants squeezing you with those bear hugs. Enjoy your visit. Most of our guys recognize no other team as relevant so don't feel bad if you cannot get an honest answer about your beloved NY Giants. A lot of off-base comments sprinkle throughout threads, you just have to overlook them until folks give up the ghost on their dreams of a second career as a stand-up comic.

    Stay away from the Shack. It will scar you for life.

    I'm still pissed about the new scheduling rules you passed a few years ago. The ones that prevent east coast teams from traveling west more than twice per year. The Pittsburgh Steelers last played in Seattle in 2003.

    2003, Roger. 2003. While the Hawks have five 10AM starts this season.

    Direct communication, not stupid subjective crap like IP's. Check out who he follows on twitter and you'll see that of the 178 people, one is @Rockhawk enabling DM's.

    Of course I'm in no way stating he's a regular here, and may have only seen us once or twice, but the fact that he made a point to reach out to me just to give us props was very cool. Thus, the welcome message.

    That's awesome, kudos to the Rockhawk and team here. Great site and I'm glad that NFL execs like Roger Goodell are checking it out!

  • Welcome Mr. Goodell. I would find your perspective fascinating. Not that you'd ever post here, but just the point of view from the top of the NFL is very interesting. That being said:

    How the hell did the NFL fine Golden Tate for that block ? That was about as clean as you ever get. Then, in the same game, Robert Turbin had the same play and decleated Demarcus Ware, but no flag was even thrown. Probably because Ware didn't get hurt. So when we going to bust the flags out and just stop tackling at all ?

    That and like Jazz said, the scheduling leaves something to be desired. If, through the schedule, you're going to have a West Coast team travel out East more than 3 times, the least you could do is see to it at least half of them end up being later games. That is all.

    I'm not certain, but I think he was referring to seahawks.com. He said 2nd biggest website, not forum. And threw in the fact that we're run by fans. At least that's the way I read it.

  • Welcome to .net Mr. Goodell...I'm sure you have a thick skin being in your line of work.

    I agree with everyone who posted regarding the team traveling east to play at 10AM it just doesn't play into keeping the game competitive when the guys are half awake. If the Steelers can catch a break traveling West then the Seahawks should be able to catch a break traveling East to play at a decent hour. That is all.

  • Please say it ain't so. What do you say to someone who never thinks they've made a bad decision? I guess you ask a question... Do you actually have a strategy for improving the game and the marketability of the game or do you just wing it as it comes? Guess I'll just put my blinders on and wait for the answer to my question that won't be answered because.. That's what Goodell would do.
